SPONSOR OF THE MONTH

MOMS-2-e1406504042463
Andrea Keeney is a writer, blogger, mother, and wife. She is the creator of the blog, Parenting with Parents as well as the author of the book, Moms: As Elite as the C.I.A….Well Almost. When she isn’t pursuing her dreams of writing she is taking care of her three small children.
Attention! There is an elite group of women walking freely among the average citizens of the world. These freakishly instinctive beings are capable of physical, mental, and emotional acts of greatness. They tend to appear irritated, exhausted, and are almost always bombarded by very tiny renegades who are whining and/or yelling. These women come in many shapes and sizes, however they all respond to a single name: Mom. If you know one of these women, if you are one of these women, or if you are going to be one of these women, you need this book!

I’ll be testing this out then.”
How to prepare for overnight guests and welcome letter

It brought to light what I have been seeing in myself lately as a mother. Children have a way of causing you to see your child-like behaviors in yourself through them. When my eight year old daughter has another emotional breakdown, I see me. In see me in my 5 year old son’s obsessiveness and impatience. I guess in some ways we are all still like toddlers.”

resolutions

Tiffany chose 5 Resolutions Every Mom Needs from Seven Graces. “I picked this post because Resolution No. 5 really struck a chord with me. I think it can be so hard to allow yourself a bit of grace – even more so than giving it to others at times. I am so guilty of being my own biggest critic and this was a great reminder that I deserve a bit of grace too.”
DSC04816.jpgb4cleaning
Mari chose Before & After/ Loving Chalkboard Paint for Tween/Teen’s Bedroom from Chocolate and Sunshine. “This has to be the best kids room I have seen in a long time. I loved Dana’s use of chalk on a whole wall. Great way to inspire lots of imagination.”

Britney also chose this post. “I enjoyed this article because she’s logical. She gave great, practical advice and she was transparent in showing her own income from blogging. She also gave some great links for further reading. In blogging groups I notice that many of us are very curious about how to monetize our blogs and this post is very helpful and insightful.”
Add-text1-683x1024
Elaine chose How to Use Hootsuite Pro from Chaos & Kiddos. “I upgraded to Hootsuite Pro last week because I was spending 3+ hours a day scheduling tweets and Google+ page post for 4 websites with 6 twitter accounts. This is a great tutorial.”
Natasha also chose this post. “Although I have used Hootsuite for some time, I haven’t tried to make the effort to purchase Hootsuite Pro. Katy has definitely convinced me and has shared some great tips to use it most effectively! Great post!”
30-day-prayer-journal
Cindy chose 30 Days of Prayer Journaling Prompts: Day 1 from Life from My Laptop. “I don’t journal, I never have but I have always been interested in prayer journaling. Alyssa’s post gave me the tools I needed to get started.”

balance-2
April chose 3 Strategies to Create Balance in My Life In 2015 from Tabler Party of Two. “Although I think balance itself on a daily basis is unattainable, I love how Andrea laid out how she will be working towards an imperfect balance this year.”
red-fruit-salad
Tenns chose Red Fruit Salad from Honey & Birch. “This fruit salad looks really delicious, and I love the red color. I’m a huge fan of pomegranates and raspberries, but never thought to create a fruit salad with them. I could totally see eating this salad with a drizzle of honey or dopple of whipped cream.”
dsc_0490cucidati2
Silvie chose Cucidati – Italian Fig Cookies from Bakewell Junction. “I love these cookies ever since I tried them at a wedding. I’ve always wanted to make them and this recipe is easy to follow.”
